Guterres in C.A.R, promises to strengthen peacekeeping efforts [The Morning Call]

The Morning Call

We begin with the Central African republic CAR where U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres paid tribute on Tuesday

to the thousands of U.N. peacekeepers in the country, the site of one of the U.N.‘s most dangerous missions and the most sexual misconduct allegations

against peacekeepers and U.N. personnel last year. The U.N. chief attended a wreath-laying ceremony in the capital, Bangui as he commemorated the United nations day.
